Title: Roly Poly Pangolin
Author/Illustrator: Anna Dewdney
Publisher: Penguin Group
Ages: 2 to 5
Synopsis: Toddlers and very young readers will delight in the adventures of Roly Poly as he explores the big world around him. Things seem awfully scary to the little Pangolin but he soon finds out what seems strange at first might turn into a pleasant surprise if he would just open his eyes to the possibility.
Why you should read it: The bright colors and adorable illustrations of Roly Poly provided by Ms. Dewdney's book caught my attention from the start. Beyond the cute cover, this is a story with universal appeal for the very young. The world can be a scary place to a toddler but it can also be filled with new friends and fun experiences. With a new school year just around the corner, ROLY POLY PANGOLIN could help pre-schoolers adjust to the new school routine and maybe even discover new friends. This would be a great addition to any home library.
